The 2-day silent art auction at the Oconomowoc Festival of the Art helps raise scholarship funds used to support artists. All art available in the silent auction has been donated by festival artists.
Bidding for the silent art auction runs each day of the festival – Saturday and Sunday – from 11am – 3pm. Bidders are encouraged to be nearby at the conclusion of each day’s bidding window so they may collect and pay for their items. Winners will also be notified by phone if needed. Any Saturday auction artwork not claimed by noon on Sunday will be added to the Sunday silent art auction. Sunday winning bidders must collect and pay for their items by 5pm.
Visitors are encouraged to visit the Silent Art Auction Tent – located across the parking lot from the food pavilion – and bid on their favorite pieces of art!
Well-established social or civic groups are invited to apply for one of a very limited number of display booths spots near the entrance to Fowler park during the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts. Display booths are intended to help local social and civic groups share their mission and community impact with art festival visitors.
This should be only an informational display about your group. No handouts, no raffles, no political or personal agendas, no fundraising, no sales and no soliciting are permitted. You may have a clip board to take information from interested people, if desired.
Display booth spots are approximately 10’ x 10’ and located near the entry gate in Fowler Park and on the side near the artists and the piano stage. Groups will need to set up and tear down their own booth displays, in addition to providing their own table, chairs, and protection from the elements. Display booths should be clearly labeled with the group’s name and staffed from 10am-5pm each day of the art festival. Please note, there is NO electricity.
If interested, please send us a letter or email telling us about your group, what you do, how you impact the community, and why you wish to be a Spotlight Group.
